Default J E L L O is a scam artist, keep away from him

So he posted an add for an iphone 4. I contacted him asked a few questions and made my payment the same day. This was on a wednesday, he assuRed me he would ship on friday. So friday arrieved and i tex him an ask if he mailed the phone, he replys yes, but i left thet racking number home and rushed-out. This was the first bad sign. I gave him a chance since i know things happen.

So by sunday i still have no tracking and i knew he was flaking. He was ignoring me so i opened a paypal dispute. Thank GOD for pay pal. Once i opened the dispute he had the nerve to ask me for my address so he can now ship the item!

So he lied about shipping as i thought he did. So i replyed, na keep your phone and issue me a refund. He says i dont do refunds. So i told him that paypal is looking into the case so just make it easier on himself and refund my money.
He then says can i get the address so i can actually mail it. I told him to figure out a resoloution to the problem he started!

Anyways dont deal with him, hes a phony! I only delt with him cause he had all posative feedback!

All positive feedback He was at 1


you should send him a PM with a link to this thread.

If your side of the story is legit, he's a tool. If he's not he'll be able to have a reasonable explanation....but somehow I doubt that will happen.

Thanks for posting your side of the story. I don't understand where all of these flakes are coming from lately. Seems like they all either don't ship on time, or give you excuse after excuse as to why it hasn't shipped yet.

Seems like the closer it gets to the Christmas more people are struggling to make a buck. Whether its the right way of not. I can't imagine Christmas morning having little Johnny open up a nice new rc car I stole from someone. If you can't buy it you don't need it !

In all honesty he can say i didnt pay and backed out. But i have the tex from the number he posted and i have a pypal claim number, how can i open a dispute if i didnt pay? And i have a pay pal claim number.

I cant under stand why people are always trying get over on someone? I know money is tight, but all this nonsense needs to stop. And i will post this link on his visitor messages, so we can what great story he can make up.

It means when threads like this come up and I contact the questionable party and they continue to log in and conduct business here without contacting me or posting their side of the story in the thread, I label them as a scammer and ban their account.

There's slightly more to it than that as far as a moderator standpoint but that's about the jist of it.

I figured that you were reffering to banning him! Thanks for you guys, trying to keep the community safe!

Sorry you have to waste you time on him!
